When You Should Put on the Brakes and Stop By Schumacher Lincoln of Delray

When do car brakes need to be changed?

The frequency of brake service depends on the make and model of your car, in addition to your overall driving habits. In general, though, you should replace the brake pads after 50,000 miles. However, if you encounter any of these signs, you should have your brakes checked immediately:

  • Hear strange sounds
  • Feel vibrations when handling the steering wheel
  • See a brake light on your dashboard

How are car brakes tested?

At Schumacher Lincoln of Delray, we begin by testing your brakes and brake pads. We will then:

  • Look for brake dust on the wheels
  • Inspect the thickness of the brake pads
  • Test your steering wheel
  • Make sure your brake pedal is working

How should car brakes feel?

Instead of focusing on how your brakes should feel, you should be vigilant about how your brakes shouldn't feel. Here are signs that your brakes may need service:

  • Vibrations in your brakes or steering wheel
  • Soft, spongy feel to your brakes
  • Car pulls to one side as you're driving

What causes car brakes to fail?

While there are many reasons why car brakes may fail, the common causes are oil leaks, overheated brakes, and over-worn brake pads.
